Các em thân mến, đối với những bạn bắt đầu học IELTS, tìm được cho mình những tài liệu luyện thi IELTS phù hợp với trình độ của mình là một việc vô cùng quan trọng. Tài liệu học IELTS thì vô cùng nhiều, tuy nhiên, nếu không chọn đúng thì bộ tài liệu đó sẽ chính là con dao hai lưỡi khiến các em cảm thấy khó khăn với hành trình chinh phục IELTS của mình. 1 Read before you listen - predict the answer One difficulty in the exam is that you are not just listening, but reading the question and writing the answer all at the same time One simple tip is to read the questions before you listen so that you know what you are listening for It is a difficult skill to master, but it can sometimes help to try and predict the type of answer you are looking for: is it a name for instance or a number? Read as you listen - focus on the whole question A huge proportion of mistakes are made not because you haven't listened well, but because you you not focus on the question As you are listening focus on the precise wording of the question See this video tutorial for more on this Look at questions at once One difficulty is that the answers to questions often come quickly one after the other Can you get both answers? Maybe, maybe not: but the only way you can is if you are ready for the next question I'd add that it's no problem getting one question wrong, the real problem is if you lose track of where you are in the listening and you are still listening for question 13 when the cassette has moved onto question 15 Don't leave the writing to the end Sometimes candidates leave the writing part to the end, thinking that they will remember what they heard In my experience, this almost never works: there's a lot of information, you're under stress and, most importantly, after each listening you should be moving onto the next set of questions to read them Practice your shorthand You not have to write everything that you down: you have 10 minutes at the end to copy your answers onto the answer sheet So what you need to is to learn how to write down enough for you to recognise as you are listening so that you can write it out in full later The one exception to this is in part with numbers and names where you have to write everything out in full as you are listening that is the challenge Numbers and names - check your spelling In part 1, you are almost invariably required to spell names and/or write down numbers This looks easy, but in my experience can often go wrong and the problem is that if you get any spelling wrong, you lose the mark Of course you know the alphabet, but some letters can cause problems even for advanced learners, in particular: J&G Y A&E&I My tip is to make an association that you can remember: these are mine, but I suggest you make your own: J is for Jesus, but G is for God How you spell "why"? W-H-Y A is for apple E is for elephant I is for 'I" Don't write the answer too quickly Sometimes you hear what you think is the answer, but the speaker goes on to correct themselves or give slightly different information: "So I'll see you on Wednesday afternoon" "Sorry, I'm busy then How about Thursday evening?" "Fine, Thursday at 0'clock" Don't leave any blank answers There are reasons for this Firstly, your guess may well be correct, particularly if it is a multiple choice style question Secondly, there is a danger if you leave a blank that you write the answers in the wrong boxes on the answer sheet and that can be a disaster Listen for repeated information This doesn't always work, but sometimes the words that are the answer are repeated: if you need to make a guess choose the words you hear repeated, they could well the be answer 10 Look for clues in the question A frequent question type is completing a table; in this type of question you will often find clues to the answer by looking at the other information in the table In particular, look at the headings of the rows and columns: if, for example, the heading says "equipment" and some of the completed boxes say "paperclips" and "cardboard" you have a good clue as to what you should be listening for
